“Great theatre for opera lovers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2012

I was lucky to buy a ticket in advance for Stiffelio, Verdi's opera. The theatre itself is fantastic, and the acoustics is great. The voices sound marvelous, I enjoyed it even better than La Scala. So, if you are an opera fan, and if you go to Parma, check if there is a performance in Teatro Regio and go there.

“One of Italy's great opera houses”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2012

The Teatro Regio has a long and fine tradition as one of the prime opera venues in Italy. While not as famous as La Scala (Milan), La Fenice (Venice), or San Carlo (Naples), and while not having an elegant or grand-looking exterior, the theater itself is magnificent, and the acoustics are terrific. Parma has long been noted for its sophisticated, expressive, and at times unforgiving opera audiences. The Teatro Regio no longer has a regular opera season, but instead is home to the annual Verdi Festival. Each October three Verdi operas are produced, generally two at the Regio and one at the tiny Teatro Verdi in Busseto. If I can choose just one opera venue in Italy, I will almost invariably pick this one (except in summer, when I love Lo Sferisterio in Macerata).

“go to an opera there”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2011

this is one of the msot significant opera houses in Italy, and not only because Arturo Toscanini wa active here. If you can, try to go to an oepra performance there. Youw ill see how intimate is the relationship betweenteh company and the public there. This does not mean an fawning public - but a very knowledgeable and critical one. Seems opera is a seriosu business in Italy still.
